What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens?
Physical sunscreens only use natural mineral ingredients that are safe for the coral reef and our skin. Unlike chemical sunscreens that absorb UV rays into the skin, which can potentially cause irritations and allergic reactions, physical sunscreens are safer for your skin since it only forms a barrier on top of your skin that reflects harmful UV rays. It kinda works like having an umbrella on top of your skin. Sunshur is a physical sunscreen that is 100% all natural.
Why are chemical sunscreens harmful to the coral reefs?
Majority of the chemical sunscreens available in the market has toxic active ingredients that cause coral bleaching which results to our reefs dying. The most common ingredients found in chemical sunscreens are Oxybenzone, Benzophenone-3, Butylparaben, Octinoxate, Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, and 4-methylbenzylidene camphor.
Why is SUNSHUR safe for the coral reefs?
Sunshur is a physical sunscreen which only uses minerals such as Coated Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide as its active ingredients to protect you from the sun. Our formulation is 100% natural and ECO-certified which makes it safe for our coral reefs.
What is the correct way to apply SUNSHUR sunscreen?
Apply generously on skin 20 minutes before sun exposure. Rub thoroughly. Re-apply after 80 minutes, or after swimming, sweating, and towel drying. Wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen to unprotected areas.
Why does other physical mineral sunscreen leave a white film/stain on my skin and SUNSHUR does not?
We made sure to only use high quality ingredients. We only used COATED Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide (Cosmetic Grade) in our product. That is why our sunscreens leave minimal or close to none white stains/film on our skin. You can enjoy and benefit from the protection of the sun without looking like a ghost! LOL
What is the difference between COATED and UNCOATED Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide?
UNCOATED Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are cheap industrial grade materials which are intended to be used as colorant for paint, rubber, plastic, waxes and other hardware products. Now imagine using that on your skin! Sunshur only uses COATED Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide which are premium and cosmetic grade ingredients that are safe for our body.
How do I know if my sunscreen used UNCOATED Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide?
Based on our own experience, when we used Uncoated Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide in our own research and development process, the uncoated one leaves a very noticeable white film/stain on your skin no matter how long you try to spread it.
